Pre-game: Chile vs Spain (25 Jun 2010)Match Details
Chile-Spain, Group G, Johannesburg – JEP, Wednesday 23 June, 20.30 (local time)

Why Spain would win?

This is a very important match as Spain is fighting for life and for their next round booking. Spain is powered by Fernando Torres, David Villa and history where Spain have always beaten Chile. Their record against this team is remarkable — 7 wins, 1 draw, scoring 18 goals and conceding only 3.

But then again, we have seen how France has bowed out of group stage, how defending champions Italy was beaten by Slovakia which is a team everyone dismissed before the tournament began.

Why Chile would win?

This team has not yet lost and they have shown how committed they are in winning. This team also has three star players in Bravo, Orellana, and Suazo playing for the Spanish league which gives them mastery of their opponents tonight.

Key Takeaway

As I said, favorites have gone out of this tournament badly beaten (France, Italy), Chile might just add Spain to the list of big name losers this year.

Ivory Coast was blazing hot in this game. Just 14 minutes after match kicked off they scored a goal. They followed this up with another goal just before the second half ended.

Ivory Coast needed to win big and they did not disappoint. Credit goes to Didier Drogba for having an awesome game.

Great finish for this team on the finals.

Pre-game: Korea DPR vs Côte d'Ivoire (25 Jun 2010)Match Details
Korea DPR-Ivory Coast, Group G, Nelspruit, Friday 25 June, 16.00 (local time)

Why Ivory Coast would win?

Ivory Coast drew against Portugal and gave Brazil a good fight that could have ended in a draw as well.

Didier Drogba, one of the best players in the world is playing hurt but as a team they are gritty on defense and can get Drogba to score a goal against their opponent. On a lesser goalkeeper for Korea DPR, Ivory Coast should score more goals than they had in the previous games..

Why Korea DPR would win?

Humiliated by Portugal on a seven goal barrage, the most number in this FIFA World Cup history; Korea DPR should be mad dogs fighting for respect in this tournament. Carrying their country’s name should be more than enough to expect a good win from this squad.

Key Takeaway

This is a no bearing game (unless Ivory Coast scores ten goals or more) but both of these do not want to go out losing especially with their country’s flag on the line. Expect both these teams fighting for a win.

Pre-game: Portugal vs Brazil (25 Jun 2010)Match Details
Portugal-Brazil, Group G, Durban, Friday 25 June, 16.00 (local time)

Why Brazil would win?

Brazil runs the ball with Robinho, Silva, and Fabiano with great skill, smooth orchestration, solid execution, that deliver goal after goal.

Kaka is suspended for this game but the remaining players are more than enough to make a good run.

This team has a solid defense but their offense make their defense shine less as this team simply controls possession of the ball 3/4 of the time.

Brazil has proven their consistency and managed to win all their games in FIFA World Cup 2010.

This team is going to come out blazing.

Why Portugal would win?

Portugal is a determined team anchored on Cristiano Ronaldo who the best player in the world behind only to Argentine Lionel Messi.

They has scored a draw against Ivory Coast and doubts were cast on their ability to win especially when Ivory Coast main man, Didier Drogba was playing hurt.

With their backs against the wall vs Korea DPR, they scored 7 goals, the highest in this tournament and the highest in Portugal World Cup history. While Korea DPR is an inferior team, Brazil didn’t score half the goals Portugal did against them.

Key Takeaway

This is the most anticipated game of the group stage where two high profile, high caliber, winning teams meet.

Both these teams boast a number of the best players in the world and expect this match to be electrifying.
